PRME prides itself on the development of current and future managers. Part of this process is implementing its key six principles which include (starting from most relevant/important) purpose, values, method, research, partnership and dialogue.
The purpose is to develop the capabilities of students to be future generators of sustainable value for business and society at large and to work for an inclusive and sustainable global economy.
PRME’s values principle incorporates into our academic activities and curricula the values of global social responsibility as portrayed in international initiatives such as the United Nations Global Compact.
The method is to create educational frameworks, materials, processes and environments that enable effective learning experiences for responsible leadership.
Research engages in conceptual and empirical research that advances our understanding about the role, dynamics, and impact of corporations in the creation of sustainable social, environmental and economic value.
Principle five, partnership, interacting with managers of business corporations to extend our knowledge of their challenges in meeting social and environmental responsibilities and to explore jointly effective approaches to meeting these challenges.
The last principle is dialogue, which is about facilitating and supporting dialog and debate among educators, students, business, government, consumers, media, civil society organisations and other interested groups and stakeholders on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability.
